It's sad that FIFA does not do more to bring them in, rather than just sit and wait for them to fill in the application satisfactorily, while simultaneously changing the criteria.
They should behave more like the EAFF did with the Northern Mariana Islands.
And from what I've read recently it looks like thay are going to help NMIFA with the application to next years AFC Congress to become a full member, that will then bring the total to 7 and that is without the likes of Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati & Tuvalu who are all looking for FIFA membership as well. All it needs now is for CAF to consider upgrading Reunion & Zanzibar and for Kosovo to be recognised by the UN (Russia & Serbia) and all will be great with the world of football. If my sums are right that brings the total of eligable non-FIFA members to 13 which would bring the total overall FIFA membership to 222. No doubt that Bonaire & Greenland will also have a question to ask as well as that could then push membership up to 224.
And Monaco, if they ever get their act together and behave like a nation.
Vatican City, Nauru and Marshall Islands are all independent states too, but might need 100 years more to join. Niue is an OFC associate member, so would technically be ahead of Micronesia and Palau, who are not associates of any confederation. St. Barthélemy is also looking at the possibility of joining CONCACAF. And there's also the oft-forgotten Mayotte and Western Sahara (full member of the OAU), not to mention Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man, Falkland Islands, St. Pierre & Miquelon. FIFA could realistically have 240 Members and be OK.
